well I plan on going to see Rancid this sunday. I would have to get the day off from work (Ingles grocery) or at least get the early early shift. The thing is, my boss is kind of uptight (well, very) and we really arent supposed to request days off anymore since people were taking advantage of it. As much as I hate to, I need to come up with an excuse as to why I need that day off or why I should get the morning. Id love to tell him the truth, but he'd get pissed that I would even ask for that.
So UG, help me out. What believable excuses should i try?

your mouse ate your last bit of cheese, your cat ate your mouse, your dog ate your cat and your pet tiger ate your dog, and now you have to attend all their funerals and it will last a week.

it works, believe me

What happened to just calling in sick? Say you have the flu and you don't want to get your germs all over the food so the customers dont get sick and decide never to shop there again.

You could always not say, and suddenly "find out that your Mum has been in a car crash" and "go to see if she's ok".

Funeral. He can't openly doubt you for the risk that you're telling the truth. Works every time.

Yeah "shot"ting it seems like a bright idea.
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

If i say the dentist or doctor, then he'd want an a docotors excuse so I doubt that's a good one to use.

Just tell him rancid is much more important then obeying his orders. Hes a manager at a grocery store, hes no one important.

Isn't it your right to get days off, and he can't deny them? I don't work, but that's how I thought it went.

Doctors appointment.

but you have to build it up, ie start coughing on monday, heavily on tuesday, a small bottle of "pills" (sweets) for wednesday, a few big bottles for thursday, and an appointment on friday also your ill so you get the whole day off. if you do it really well, you can carry this on to mon/tues the next week.


or, funeral.

be extremely upset on tuesday, as your mum died or whoever.
friday off.

if you do it really well, a few grievence days too.

I use this form:

My ___________ is/are in a state of ______________ and need/needs ______________ . Therefore I cannot be here on __________________.

Just fill in the blanks for a custom-built, fool proof, 100% accurate excuse.

For example: My Mother is in a state of cardiac arrest and needs me to be by her side. Therefore I cannot be here on Sunday.

Or perhaps: My Teeth are in a state of cavity and need a dentist. Therefore I cannot be here on Sunday.

Use the form, be creative.

well our schedules for the rest of the week are made on tuesday and so Id have to ask him today, so a funeral wont work and a doctors appointment seems wrong...I guess Ill say my cousin is going on a mission trip to India monday and we're having a party on sunday for him (Its half true actually). Hows that?

My cousin is in a state of religious crusading and needs me to throw a goodbye party for him . Therefore I cannot be here on Sunday .

my boss is exactly the same dude, i always say its college... i've tried every excuse in the book (dentists, doctors, wedding, funeral, i'm ill, etc.) and she is just so uptight about giving time off... i once told her i had a my grand dads funeral to go too, hes not really dead hes very much alive lol, but she went as far as to ask me to AVOID it! if i really was going to his funeral i'd be pissed as hell!
but the excuse that works everytime now is college... say you gotta college assignment or something and explain to her that its a course your paying for and she can't say no =]
